Experience and Skills
A computer scientist who mixes photography and code to visualize what I find to be engaging, wise, and forward for all humans.
I have been a photographer ever since I saw my first near-infrared landscape search on the Internet back in 2005. Since then I have passionately targeting my skills to learning everything I could about photography. Formally educated at Weber State University with a degree in Computer Science, my passion for computers and programming started in 1988 when our family got a computer.
I now travel and share what I know, and what I've seen. I love teaching photography and computer science and continue gathering resources and class ideas.
